The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 aims to inspire and enable Canadians to explore their relationships with those migrations. We envision opening that conversation on a national scale. As part of this conversation, we are eager to hear from anyone with a story related to Canadian immigration. Personal experiences of immigration are an important learning resource—you can help the Museum grow by sharing yours. We invite you to share your immigration story. The Museum is also evolving its onsite and online programming and creating new ways to share the stories of immigration. In the next few months you will begin seeing many changes. We invite you to visit the Museum and revisit our website to experience these exciting new initiatives and more.

Pier 21 is a National Historic Site which was the gateway to Canada for one million immigrants between 1928 and 1971. It also served as the departure point for 500,000 Canadian Military personnel during the Second World War. Today, Pier 21 hosts the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21—Atlantic Canada’s only national museum!
